Amazon's Map Tracking feature lets you prepare for the delivery

Amazon has launched a new feature for its users that allows them to track packages even more closely. In fact, the new feature lets you see where the package is currently on a map.
Map Tracking shows you the delivery truck's location on a small map in your neighborhood or at least nearby when it is closing in on a delivery. The tracking starts when the delivery is 10 stops away from you.

In the Map Tracking view you can find the approximate location as well as how many deliveries the truck will have to do before yours.

This allows you to either hurry home to receive your highly anticipated new toy or perhaps prepare for delivery (read: close the curtains, hide the bodies).

The feature was already available to selected few since last year but now it has reportedly been expanded to most if not all users. The Amazon app will remind you with a notification when Map Tracking is available.

It must be nice to be somewhere Amazon cares about. Here in Wisconsin we just get "Delivery by 8PM"...and sometimes they update that at 7PM because the box is still on the other side of the country.
